The Pros and Cons of Various Security Gate Options

Hercules High Security Gate Options
There are a few different security gate options property owners can choose from to maintain appropriate security and access control.

Maintaining the security of your business is absolutely critical, and one of the ways to do it is with a security gate. It’s important to note, however, that all security gate options are not created equal—consider each option’s pros and cons before choosing the best one for your business. Every gate operates differently, and each of them has various ways they can be upgraded to make them even more secure—from access control to crash-ratings, they all have something to offer as well as their own drawbacks.

Swing Gates

Swing gates are a standard security gate option. They’re simple, easy to install, and easy to operate. Unfortunately, these gates do take up a lot of space when being operated, so this needs to be accounted for when you’re choosing which security gate to go with and where it’s going to be. A swing gate can be built as two smaller gates that open, which can conserve some space if necessary.

Rolling Gates

Rolling gates are an excellent option when you’re low on space. These have wheels attached to them, and they run parallel to the perimeter fence. This is great for saving space because it operates similar to a pocket door by avoiding the need to swing the gate forward or backward and instead rolling it from side to side and keeping it tucked near the fence while it’s open.

Manual Lift Gates

Swing gates open like a door and rolling gates slide side-to-side, but manual lift gates use verticality to save space. These can be a little slow to open and they still need to be opened manually, but they are still a great security gate option for many businesses.

Automatic Lift Gates

Automatic lift gates are just like manual lift gates, but they are operated electrically. This saves time and effort, and it can offer great access control for many different types of businesses. Simply add a method of identification confirmation to keep the gate secure and prevent unauthorized individuals from entering the premises.
